Re: Vytorin
Jul 9, 2005
[QUOTE=Dave-K]Hi all,
Some background. My Total Cholesterol was 280, I took Lipitor (20mg?) and my next blood test 6 weeks later I was down to 177!!! unfortunately my Liver Enzimes were elevated. My doc switched to 20mg Pravachol and 6 weeks later my cholesterol was at 240, my doctor put me on 40 mg pravachol and 6 weeks later my TC was 205.

I thought the 205 was good and that my doctor would keep me on Pravachol but my doctor decided to put me on Vytorin (10/20).

In all the time my cholesterol was high, I tried many different diets including oatmeal in the morning, a salad for lunch and then a filling dinner, Low fat diets, low cholesterol but nothing worked so I have been basically eating what I want. Unlike last year, I am now hiking and kayaking.

How is Vytorin treating everyone? Anyone with elevated liver enzymes due to it?



I am scheduled for blood work sometimes this week. Doc told me that if there are any problems he will call. IF he does not call I assume no problems. Then I will go over results with him in September is my next doc visit.

Let you know.

Otherwise doing super on a very small dose of Vytorin. I take 10/20 split in half which amounts to 5/10 and according to Cardiocheck am getting good results.
